2- Start wrapping the strips around the pants legs.As you go, glue along the way.Do not wrap them too tight but snugly.The thermals will stretch a little when they are put on.

3- Repeat this with the top.Let dry completely overnight.(You can sew these on if you wish to.)

4- To get the aged look use tea to soak the costume in.Or splash the tea on the costume.

5- Wrap your mummy's head with some pre-aged strips.Do not cover the face.
